your thoughts on how long we will be seeing these issues? guest: i think we will be seeing these issues for a while. this is obama's second term, and here we are right at the start of it, we have three things being lumped together -- in gauzy, the ap situation, and the irs -- benghazi, the ap situation, and the irs. these are absolutely sucking up the media's attention right now, and people are mindful of elections in this town. people already are planning in the 2014 elections, which seems crazy because it is may of 2013, but so many things in this town revolve around getting reelected, but i do think these issues will be around for quite awhile. never mind the gun issue which we did not talk about -- that is going to come back absolutely. meanwhile, behind the scenes, you have immigration reform, a substantive issue people are trying to get done that might benefit from the public focus on these issues.
